#HarfordCountyGives arose from the desire to coordinate annual #GivingTuesday efforts into a locally focused, year-round initiative.

Harford County, Maryland is a wonderfully generous community of people, businesses and organizations.  We’ve had the pleasure of living and running our family business here for over 20 years and find ourselves uniquely in a position to establish relationships and coordinate efforts between Harford nonprofits and the business community.

#HarfordCountyGives will enhance two of our ongoing projects — The Nonprofit Advisory Group and the Small Business Advisory Group.  By introducing (or augmenting) cause marketing and a philanthropic culture to local business, and providing strategic consulting and guidance to local nonprofits, #HarfordCountyGives can help these groups make Harford County a better place to live and work.

Join us at one (or both) of our groups, or contact us to see how you can get involved!

The Nonprofit Advisory Group meets once a month for lunch and discussions with other nonprofit organizations in the area (The third Friday of the month). This special networking group functions as an informal board of advisors for nonprofit professionals who each bring their own unique experiences and expertise to the table.

The Nonprofit Advisory Group was recently recognized by Maryland Governor, Larry Hogan with a “Governor’s Volunteer Service Certificate”!


Please feel free to add your organization to our Directory and add your events to our Calendar.   By creating a Master Calendar of events we hope to reduce the instances of Nonprofits scheduling competing events in the county!

The Small Business Advisory Group also meets once a month for lunch and discussions with other small businesses in Harford County (The fourth Tuesday of the month).  Created in conjunction with the Bel Air Downtown Alliance, this group networks and serves as an informal board of advisors for participating organizations.  We focus on business development through shared experience and collaboration, as well as community improvement and development.
